Arrived at PS HQ around 11am. They break up the interview into 4 portions. HR interview, HR presentation, facility tour, sim evaluation. I did the HR interview first and questions that were asked were pretty standard.  Then a scenario where the PIC is flying an approach what sorts of things as the FO am I looking for? If he goes below the MDA what do you do? What if after you let him know to go missed he continues even further? What do you do? They concluded the HR interview by allowing me to ask questions of which I had a few. HR interview was probably where I preformed best. You have to remember that at PS you're the point of contact for all customers. They really want to see what you'll be a good... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  2. Aug 31, 2022 It consisted of a technical portion, SIM evaluation and an HR portion. Questions were almost the same as the gouge on the site. You’ll be asked both VFR and IFR questions, especially IFR into non towered airports. The people were really great and welcoming. Make sure to know SIDs and STARs and also how to interpret Jepp charts. They explained almost everything about the company on the HR interview. Got the phone call telling me I was hired the very next... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Aug 30, 2022 Interview was great. HR portion was mostly them giving me information. Had a few questions pertaining to customer service. Technical part was mostly answering questions from a jep departure and approach chart. Nothing tricky. Sim was a 172 sim. Good sim. I just did horrible on my approach and forgot my missed approach procedure after the initial climb and couldn’t find it on the jep chart on the ipad the instructor provided. I have never used jep charts and couldn’t locate it... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Aug 16, 2022 We met at a local flight school at 0800 in Florida. There were nine applicants. There were three parts to the process; HR, technical, and simulator. The folks from PlaneSense were friendly and relaxed. Technical was all questions from various approach plates, and arrival/departure plates.(view the study guide of this website) I received a phone call saying I was hired two days later. One last thing. Attire varied among the applicants. from open collar, to suits. I suspect the... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Aug 02, 2022 Day started off waiting around for about an hour while the HR people sorted through everyones paperwork and corrected errors. There were six applicants there that day and they split us up into groups. I started off doing the sim. (view the Sim/Scenario section in the study guide of this website).  Then HR and technical interviews were meshed into one and they asked me to explain further about a job I held in the past and how it tied into customer service. Then they asked why I was... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jul 27, 2022 First part of the interview was a technical one with chief pilot and hr rep. It was pretty straight forward talking about different departures, arrivals, and approaches given to you in the packet they’ve sent. Make sure to read the notes on the plates. Some of them they will ask you to walk through some of the plates and how to enter the hold or to proceed down to the runway. 2nd interview was a few days later, this was a sim eval and hr behavioral interview. Really fun experience... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jul 27, 2022 Overall very smooth and pleasant interview/tour day at their nice HQ up in Portsmouth. Everyone was very respectful and polite. Make sure to stay on top of your IFR and instrument procedures. For those that haven't flown IFR in a while I'd definitely recommend getting a course refresher. As far as the sim evaluation, they're not looking if you know how to fly the airplane but instead make the right decisions/procedures under IFR. I'm very pleased on how it went and I'm looking forward to... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Jul 27, 2022 Technical interview was over approach plates and departure procedures. Make sure to read the notes on charts and what are the circling mins especially with the different symbols. In person interview was great, we had a simulator session and completed a departure, approach and missed procedure into JFK 4. Know how to identify the faf and when to descend. The in person interview was a tmoat when you were scared in the airplane. And how the schedule work for you. The final part was a tour of... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jul 27, 2022 First interview was virtual with Chief Pilot. Packet of Jeppesen plates with SIDs, STARs, and Approaches emailed prior to interview. Interview was mostly technical and was straight forward but if you fly with gov’t plates, take time to review Jeppesen style. Within a couple days, I received an invitation for an in person interview in Portsmouth NH. Headquarters is a beautiful facility and everyone there was friendly and cordial. The applicant group is broken down into smaller groups... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Jun 16, 2022 Interview happened in two stages. First was a phone call which was the technical interview. A number of approach plates, SIDs, STARs, and Airport diagrams were sent out about two weeks prior so they could be studied. Emphasis was placed on the new circling minimums as well as catching small hard to miss notes regarding runway lighting systems required for certain minimums for a given approach. About 5 days later I was contacted saying I was approved for an in person HR and Simulator... Continue reading this interview experience
